Toast in beer making

When I was a child in the early 50's, my mother made beer in a huge terracotta bowl, glazed yellow inside.

I was too young to know the recipe but vividly remember her floating a thick slice of her home-made, toasted bread on the surface of the liquid and maybe sprinkling yeast on it.

Did anyone else's Mum or Grandma do this?
